Ran to the store for some heavy whipping cream and I hear a voice behind me say “you must be making something good?” I turned around and a man with a huge bird on his shoulder was standing there. Uhm, why does this always happen to me, I didn’t invite a conversation and i don’t really feel like chit chatting right now but then I thought this old man probably doesn’t talk to anyone else but this bird so of course I start asking questions about it and he wants to show me all of his tricks and then I start getting into it. Then people walk by like I’m the freak show because i’m having a conversation with this guy, in the grocery store, about his bird on his shoulder that eats almonds out of his mouth. Wow. My day has just begun….
